Received in 2016

Bank of the Year, Japan
The Bank has been named the "Bank of the Year, Japan" by The Banker magazine.
The Banker magazine is an international financial magazine published by the Financial Times. This award takes into account not just financial performance over the past twelve months, but an engaging strategy that enabled the bank to overcome regulatory, competitive, and economic hurdles, as well as a cohesive digital strategy to the benefit of its customers. The Bank has won this award for two consecutive years.
Asia Risk Manager of the Year Award
The Bank won the "Risk Manager of the Year Award" for the first time at the 2016 Asia Risk Awards. Organized by Asia Risk Magazine, this annual award recognizes best practices in risk management by banks and financial institutions across the Asian region.
Risk governance in Asia needs to be designed to manage a diversity of regulations, languages, and currencies. Each country has different directions, priorities and levels for risk management. Therefore, risk governance in Asia used to be relatively decentralized with a certain level of autonomy given for each country. Thanks to the newly implemented governance structure, timely escalation is ensured while addressing local regulatory requirements.
Best Bank in Japan, Best Bank in the Philippines
For the second consecutive year, the Bank was named the Best Bank in Japan by Euromoney, an international financial magazine published by Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC. Security Bank, the Bank's strategic partner, was named the Best Bank in the Philippines for the first time. The Bank was honored for providing the best financial services in Japan, based on independent research by the magazine. Among the factors cited for the award were the Bank's significant role in MUFG's global expansion and its strategic partnership with Morgan Stanley.
In addition to various financial indicators, Security Bank was recognized for increasing funding capacity and access to Japanese corporates in the Philippines through its business and capital alliance with the Bank.

Best Bank in Japan
The Bank was selected as the "Best Bank in Japan" at the Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2015 hosted by the international finance magazine Euromoney (issued by Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC) in Hong Kong in July.
